Tactical Combat Casualty Care Certification | CLS | TECC – NAEMT


“This Tactical medicine course is by far the best I have seen in my 15 years of service in the SEAL teams. The final exercise is as realistic and stressful as I’ve seen in a training environment. They not only hit the wickets for the cert but also provide some unparalleled realistic training scenarios utilizing Hollywood makeup artists and the most knowledgeable instructors in the business”

4-day TCCC Certificate Course-Military/Medical Provider | $1450*

*$1250 for Active Military/LE/EMS

This certificate course is unlike any medical training you have attended. We will teach you what you will not learn in EMT, Paramedic, Emergency first responder courses, or other TCCC programs. This course will prepare students to deal with live-threatening emergencies with very little gear with an extreme hand-on training experience. The course includes tissue labs, ballistic labs, and culminates in a mass casualty incident with patients made up by Hollywood special effects moulage artists in a smoke filled multi-storied building. 

What makes SECFOR’s 4-day TCCC course so different…?

If the organization providing you with a tactical medic certificate of any kind is not willing to invest in tissue labs, ballistic labs, professional moulage scenarios, multi-storied facilities that can be filled with audio, smoke, and other effects….look for another training provider.

Tissue Labs include:

  • Wound packing
  • Hemostatic agents
  • Needle decompression
  • Cricothyrotomy
  • Finger Thoracostomy
  • Chest tubes (for medics)
  • Intraosseous infusion (IO)
  • Intravenous Fluid Delivery (IV)
  • Ballistic labs 
  • Necropsy

This 4-day Tactical Casualty Care program is fully accredited and provides continuing education credits to all EMTs and up. Graduates will receive a certificate of completion and wallet card from the National Association of Emergency medical Technicians (NAEMT)


Prerequisites: This course is ideal for medical providers (EMT to MDs) If you are not a medical provider you should have a need for the enhanced knowledge and training the 4-day course provides. IE Remote Law Enforcement, Park Rangers, High Risk Environment Security Personnel, or you may be looking to get into the medical field. 

Location: Vista, California  USA

Length of course: 4 Days (8:30am – 6:30pm daily)

“I am a 12 year Paramedic, SWAT Medic and WPS1/WPS2 PSS Paramedic…I took this course years ago and to this day it is the best tactical combat casualty program I have ever been to”

Students above resorting to back-up tourniquets during mass casualty final scenario testing. During a mass casualty incident, it is likely that resources will be quickly depleted, and non CoTCCC approved or improvised tourniquets may be the only hemorrhage control devices available. Students will learn all popular first responder equipment just in case their gear is quickly used up in during an emergency situation.
